What is Blepharoplasty?
The eyes are an attractive feature of the face that deserve to be shown; however, an excess of skin around the eyes can produce an aging facial appearance. Dr. Suzanne Trott offers blepharoplasty (also known as eyelid surgery) to reduce excess skin and rejuvenate the lower or upper eyelid, creating an awakened appearance. So many men and women undergo eyelid surgery at Suzanne A. Trott, MD, FACS to eliminate saggy eyelids, leading to improved functionality and facial appearance. Whether upper or lower, eyelid surgery creates a more awakened appearance and can give you subtle yet striking improvements.

"Dr. Trott has changed my life! I found her by getting recommendations from about 4 girlfriends who had the same procedure I was going in for. All were happy with their results, so I knew she was definitely someone I wanted to meet with. As soon as I met her for my initial consultation, I knew she was the surgeon for me. She is beyond friendly and warm and I knew I would be in good hands. She really took her time with me, showing me additional photos, thoroughly explaining the procedure to me. Aside from me really liking her work, I was happy with the fact that she only performs one surgery a day so she can take her time. I had met with another surgeon who would have slotted me as his 4th surgery for the day. Her surgical team is amazing, I didn't have one complication. She came to visit me at the aftercare facility and makes herself available to her patients by cellphone. Addy, her office manager, is so friendly and helpful. I am still healing but am already so happy with the results! Everyone I know tells me how amazing I look and that the work looks so natural. I literally cannot say enough good things about Dr. Trott. She is THE BEST!!!"- S.S. / Yelp / Jan 05, 2018
"Dr. Trott is incredible! She came highly recommended from my OBGYN. If you have any questions about a procedure, book a consultation, she and her team will go over EVERYTHING and answer every single question you have (and I had a lot). I felt very confident about my surgery, what to expect before and after, and what the recovery would be like. I am so happy with my results and have never felt more confident!"- L.D. / Google / Feb 13, 2019

"Dr. Trott is a patient-centered doctor, who greets you with a hug rather than a formal handshake (assuming you are open to a hug, of course...) and takes every pre- and postoperative precautionary measure to make sure that everything go smoothly. I compared her "look book" to many surgeons in the area, and she got the most natural looking results."- E.V. / Yelp / Feb 08, 2019
"The best liposuction by the Lipoqueen - Dr Trott is the absolute best! She fixed my botched body from previous Lipo and made it look better than ever. She cares and feels responsible for her patients being happy with their results. She had to go through endless scar tissue to fix the botch job I had years ago. No easy task and every other surgeon gave up after charging me thousands of dollars. Not, Dr. Trott! She’s an artist who m..."- M. / RealSelf / Feb 01, 2019
Ideal Candidates For Blepharoplasty
Blepharoplasty is a facial cosmetic enhancement that is sought out by both women and men. At your first visit, treatment options will be explained by Dr. Trott based on your symptoms that need to be corrected. In most cases, ideal candidates are frustrated with excess, hanging skin and folds on the upper eyelid, or bloated skin just under the bottom eyelid. These irregularities can cause vision impairment that can get in the way of daily activities. For a more awake facial appearance, blepharoplasty may be the right procedure for you. If you have loose skin that droops on the upper eyelid, or bulges and puffiness under the eyes, blepharoplasty can treat this to give you a softer appearance.
EyeLid Surgery Technique
Depending on the nature of the eyelid surgery, general anesthesia or IV sedation will be used. This procedure may be done on the top eyelid by itself, on the bottom portion, or a combination of both eyelids.
Upper eyelid surgery assists in decreasing the folds of skin that droops over the eye to create a more appealing eyelid appearance. The incision point is often placed along the lash line or crease to trim away skin and tissue.
Lower eyelid surgery is performed to improve puffy skin under the lower lid. The incision is carefully made below the lash line to allow access to remove tissue and fat, and the skin is subtly lifted to allow for a smoother look. In some cases, a nonsurgical laser treatment can be applied to assist with discoloration while dermal fillers can be used for additional smoothness and softening if needed.
What to Expect
Eyelid surgery can last up to two hours based on whether one or both eyes are treated. After the procedure, you should expect about a week to rest and avoid strenuous activities. Ice packs can assist in reducing bruising and swelling. The results from blepharoplasty can last a decade or longer, but even though they are lasting, the aging process does not stop. To complement your surgical outcomes, facial rejuvenation treatments, such as injections, fillers, and lasers, can be paired to create a glowing appearance.
